be replaced. >> and he's right. it can be replaced if we understand that government has a role in our lives. government has to be the key factor in helping that effort, that recovery effort. >> let's talk about that effort. let me go to david connorn. it seems to me that fema, there was a judgment made way back when in the '70s that government needs to be united. one focus by one man or woman, this guy, fugate's got to be good. you need like a baseball team, you need a manager, somebody to call the shots. >> and we see with more extreme weather happening in the last few years, it's more necessary to have a national, federalized approach, particularly in the planning and in the research, and tracking storms. that can't be done by 50 different states. i thought the president today was very smart when he spoke up in new jersey with governor christie. he thanked the congressional delegate for voting for fema funds. something that, of course, mitt romney -- >> well, anybody -- here's where it happens. the president this morning toured that devastation down in jersey with governor chris christie.
government says in this. you have to read to believe, disaster cold face is one of the most vital functions of big government, which is why mitt romney wants to eliminate it. david asman was reading same "new york times," he ripped it up and started eating it. >> it did not taste good. neil: what do you make of this. >> they are little bit sidin politicize a natural disaster, that is what they are doing. if you can move it from state to private sector is goes in a better direction, they say, that is, i quote, an absurd notion. they say because big government is better, whether it is fema or a new department of business that president obama w create about which we can talk more if you have time. but bottom line, fema has a terrible track record, most big federal bureaucracies do, they come up with their man made inside of the beltway, which does not necessarily fit when applied to a state or local community, any time there is a difference of opinion with between the local guys and federal government, the feds -- 92 bu92. neil: but they all welcome fema help. >> when it involves money. do you

of the british government, the red cross. somebody denied that, and the president says he cannot answer that question because there is an fbi investigation. >> well, we do know that the first responsibility for the protection of u.s. embassies and consulates is with the host government, and we also know that the host government is not capable of providing security for our embassy or our consulate, so therefore the responsibility falls to the department of state. and it is without question the department of state that the ambassador all over the world, ambassadors' describe what they believe to be their security situation and make requests for assistance. clearly there were a great many signals among other indices were leaving. we noon that september 11th was an anniversary of the 2001 attacks on america, and from everything you can read it is pretty clear that there were requests that were not fulfilled. we know for a fact that the security was inadequate because we lost four americans, including the ambassador. lou: we lost those four lives. and at the same time, there seems to be this

about tomorrow, mayor? will be telling folks? >> tomorrow is city government being closed, except for emergency personnel that has been identified already. the city is closed. the city council, the sheriff, the district attorney. all of them are shut down. mass transit will not operate for most of the day. while public schools and catholic schools and charter schools closed, as well as a bunch of colleges and universities. everyone has taken this very seriously down here. our number-one goal number one goal is public safety. and to make sure that people are in good shape to be one you know, mayor, other power companies have been saying much the same. i don't know about yours, sir, but are you raising people for that payment when they do lose power, it could be for some time? >> we try to be realistic and honest. last year, you know, we aired on the side of caution. it might be three days and it might be one wifi. sometimes it ends up being three days. we have excellent utilities down here. certainly in the gasworks as well as the water department. they are working in concert. keep
government can help. >> part of the reason we will be able to respond quickly to all of this is that they help that fema financing was in place. leaving aside campaign jabs for post-crisis unit. >> you see neighbors helping neighbors and you are reminded what america is all about. >> on the downside, if power isn't restored to hundreds of thousands of americans they could vent their frustrations at the ballot box. >> consider the politics of all of this. super storm sandy has two battleground states new hampshire and virginia. the way this could hurt president is by des pressing the early vote. neither new hampshire origingin has in person early votes. it comes down to election day turn out. let's look at the states it did devastate. new jersey, new york, connecticut those are blue states where the president is already positioned to win. anderson? >> the president begins campaigning again tomorrow is that correct? >> yes, he is on the road tomorrow. >> go ahead. he is in colorado, nevada, and colorado, nevada and one other battleground state and then he heads to ohio.
up primarily by the federal government. in concert with local and state governments. the federal government pays the bulk of the bill. and you have a large number of states. and my guess is, this is going to be extensive damage from a financial point of view, which federal government through fema, federal emergency management agency, et cetera, ultimately winds up paying for. state and locals pay a portion of it. but it's a small portion. i don't believe that's going to have a significant impact long term. the expenses diffused. it's not good for state and local governments because we're already under a lot of pressure but i think that's going to be manageable. and i don't think it's going to have a major impact. i just -- your question earlier on when do the markets get up and running and is there a delay, i think if there's an economic impact, that would be it. that's why the white house is concerned. i'm going to be reaching out to secretary geithner to make sure we're coordinated to everything we can to get wall street everything it needs to be operational as soon as possible

government is here to help. and that means the department of defense. and the department of defense yesterday was air lifting utility crews with their equipment here to new york, to new jersey and other places impacted by the storm. and more of those air lifts we anticipate to be coming over the coming days. there's an 800 number people can call. 1-800-621-3362. 1-800-621-3362. you can go to disast disasterassistance.gov. or indeed if you go to a disaster recovery center, all of the information you need to find out about the assistance you are entitled to can be found. and as was mentioned, people are now going door to door. one of my concerns -- i think all of our concerns is as the temperature drops with power still out in many neighborhoods, making sure that everybody is safe and if they need to get to a warm place that we're able to do that. so a lot of work ongoing. a lot more left to do. but the food, the water, all the assets coming into this area of the country, coming into new york. governor cuomo's been a great advocate. and coming into the borough of staten island. thank you. >> al
for the movement in 2012. her prospects in or out of government are among conversations among conservative leaders. she's making sure she's well-positioned for the future if they lose. that was a week before election day in 2008. sarah palin's plans for saving her own skin once they lost the election were being leaked by her allies. and we know from people inside that campaign it caused enormous tension inside the mccain/palin camp. so imagine how this went over this week in the romney campaign. publically, the romney campaign is on their we're going to win tour. we're even going to win pennsylvania tour. that's what they are saying publically. that's their public message. meanwhile the associated press publishes a story that's eerily similar to the sarah palin's post-election defeat plan. this time it's paul ryan whose future is being leaked about by his supporters who are fairly, clearly assuming that they are about to lose and they need to think of something else for paul ryan to do because he's not going to be business i si as vice president. publically ryan and allies maintain that momentum i
forward here. i'm going to need a lot of help from the federal government, the state government, the local government, the individuals in our community, professionals that certainly know a lot more than myself. because we're going to be going basically from the ground up. seaside heights as it wass was before it never be known that way again. >> i understand there were rescue efforts under way earlier today. can you give us the latest on that? >> yes, most of the rescues, we've gotten out, just about everybody that we can at this point in time. we feel like that we've gotten everybody that's wanted to go out. some people waited until a very, very late date, and we got some very special people over here that have a wonderful job, volunteers that want to do nothing more than just help put their own life on the line to just help these people. and we're very grateful to have individuals like that. our rescue is just about i would say about 98% complete. >> mayor, my thoughts and prayer, as are the thoughts of prayers of so many with you and your community right now. i wish you the best. we'll
political situation in the sense it's so close to an election. if the federal government is deemed not to have prepared people properly for this and it becomes another mini katrina situation, it could be literally an election wrecker for the president. conversely, if he handles this very well and it is a huge storm, that can win him the election. it can be politically very important. >> let's be clear. the record is obvious to me, the president has -- we saw what happened in the past in katrina. the president has been very aggressive putting his own boots on the ground. he came through the state of new jersey when we had flooding and the like. so this president to me, he's already proven that point and i know, i know from my work in preparing today, that the federal government is ready for this challenge and they will meet it head-on and deal with the crisis and the aftermath. and i know it's a political issue but i really want to reaffirm to people because the biggest mistakes i've seen often in these storms, especially in the obama administration, has not necessarily been the fed

would,. state government is here. we're doing what we need to do. we're coordinating with fema. i want to thank administrator fugate for being here and helping our operation even better and we'll move on from here. what i said yesterday i really mean. there has got to be sorrow. and you see that in, president has seen that today in the eyes and faces of a lot of folks he met. and that sorrow is appropriate. we suffered some loss. luckily we haven't suffered that much loss of life and we thank god for that. we have suffered losses. this is the worst time i've seen in my lifetime in this state but we can not permit that sorrow to reprays the -- replace resilience i know all new jerseyians have. we'll get up and get this thing built and get it back together because that is what this state is about and always been about. for all who are here, i met a bunch of you here at brigantine who disregarded my admonition to get the hell out of here. you are forgiven this time but not for much longer. when all of you look around and see all this destruction that's fine. you know what? all that stuff
